beowuuf: sergeHi Themerricat!
LunarJade: hi!

TheMerricat: So anyone see the news that Twitch will be unveiling a new pogchamp emote every day?
GapFiller: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news :D) at Fri 02:00 PM PST (30s from now).
TheMerricat: PogChamp
GapFiller: didnt realise it was a neu one each day
beowuuf: oh, didn't know it was every day, only saw the current new one in james's chat earlier
beowuuf: Was surprised about the new one, I'd only heard of them removing the old one
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy! PrideWave
beowuuf: sergeHi pharaohbender27!
GapFiller: speaking of there any confirmation that the old one was infact load bearing or was that just prurient wishful thinking on all our parts to explain Twitchs issues this past week?
Juliamon: That was purely comedic. The issues have been happening since before.
beowuuf: I only saw it as an unattributed story, so no clue
beowuuf: lol, oh, sorry, totally read that sentence differently :p
PharaohBender27: lrrSIGNAL !
GapFiller: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL WE ARE LIVE
RockPusher: lrrDOTS lrrSIGNAL lrrARROW

beowuuf: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
Raiz0k: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
EightBitDreams: I like this song
RandomTrivia: lrrSIGNAL !
beowuuf: this somehow feels like classic waiting music
EightBitDreams: This song is in "Just Shapes and Beats" as a bonus song
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf Possibly because it's played so often during the countdown? :p
RockPusher: !yay
LRRbot: Yaaaaaaaay...
CaptainSpam: HeckChoint! Wait, no...
djalternative: did yall hear about PogChamp roulette
Foxmar320: Hello!
Criiisiis: hello all
GapFiller: just talkin abt it before live
GapFiller: evening Foxmar320
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, @djalternative and @Foxmar320 !
KyubiStormMage: real chillpoint hours to brighten up this awful week
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 : are you positing a Pavlovian conditioning response xD?
TheMerricat: This song really takes me back to the old Atari ST demo scene. It's got the same level of bit chip high energy sound.
Foxmar320: Hope everyone is well today

Baileypog: That's a good point im not sure
GapFiller: this week got me wondering if my old SA account is still there
GapFiller: not least having not used it in gosh ~10 years
TheMerricat: I'd have to assume that it'd be whatever graphic is the one in use for 'today' @PharaohBender27 otherwise they'd have to actually code into the chat log what day the emote was used in
Juliamon: We'll find out tomorrow I guess
PharaohBender27: @Foxmar320 Eh, not too horrible, though it's been a hell of a week, and I also got a summons to possibly serve on a grand jury for a month :\
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat That scans
beowuuf: ooh
GapFiller: anyone here willing to own up to a Goon past?
djalternative: yeah, since it's a text replacement, I'm betting it'll just pull from whatever the call points to on the day
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 : the chat is in all likelihood transferred as text, with the emotes sideloaded from some content server, so probably yes on the VODs.
EightBitDreams: The good thing about the Year of Lockdown: I can actually watch a lot of these things live, I'm not stuck in the office
smallimprovement: Hype!
Foxmar320: PharaohBender27 Good luck with that. Since im a caretaker they don't contact me for jury duty anymore.

TheMerricat: Whatever you do Beej, don't press the button Graham used to bring down the stream last time
geail: Beej needs a full keyboard
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
petey_vonwho: I don't know who's brilliant idea it was to give Beej buttons to play with, but I love them
Foxmar320: I think Graham has his at 100% that way it just brings the stream down
Izandai: tqsLol
PharaohBender27: @chaostreader Doubt this will be cancelled, since it's not for a single trial - I would essentially be helping decide if charges should be brought for like 100 cases or something. That's how grand jury duty works in my county.
ritchards: And then Graham gets it wrong ;)
SnowBuddy18: nobody knows they're actually about to bussing swear
Foxmar320: Honk
niccus: not even the frequency?
djalternative: @LoadingReadyRun that's why "live tv" has at least a 10s delay

Raiz0k: Hah.
RockPusher: Retroactive 1st party!
Loonatic93: So did something interesting happen in Canada?
devil_dan: Are you building a wall on the south border any time soon?
Foxmar320: Luigi Mansion is great
GapFiller: Loonatic93 Nintendo bought out Next Level
Raiz0k: Victoria's on an island, that's already like a free moat.
shea_wolfe: I never played Punch-Out Wii and it looks rad so I'd love a new Punch-Out
Loonatic93: Yeah... But it sounded like there was something interesting that happened in Canada that wasn't video game news.
TheAinMAP: Does this mean the next "Mario Kart" level based on Vancouver will be much more accurate? :)
DiscordianTokkan: All things are made up!
Drasvin: shouldn't a "second-party" title be something made by the end user?
Faulpyr: Third party is paying for their development. Second party is being paid by the first party. At least that's how I've defined it to myself.
EightBitDreams: The way I always understood it, a Second Party was one that was partially owned, so like Nintendo owns a small percentage of the company
SmithKurosaki: Greetings
vellebastet: hello
EightBitDreams: Pokemon Company is weird
r10pez10: is the consortium like a dugtrio
Foxmar320: r10pez10 yes
Foxmar320: Its the part we can't see
SmithKurosaki: @r10pez10 So, what you're saying is Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures are digletts?
shea_wolfe: I just realized that tracing the lines Sony was almost part of Nintendo which (wasn't really) almost part of Microsoft
djalternative: The Pokemon Company is a dodrio of corperations
EightBitDreams: It's always weird when GameFreak releases a non-Pokemon game, like that rhythm game they made a few years ago
EvilBadman: Gamefreak's made non-pokemon multiplatform games
ritchards: it's like how there is Triple-A rating... but don't really have AA or A rating studios.
SmithKurosaki: @shea_wolfe Would have been an interesting nesting doll

djalternative: @ritchards we do, people just don't call them that. the A ratings are based on budget for the games they put out
Izandai: Part of Next Level's business model was getting to plaster Nintendo's logo prominently on all their games.
r10pez10: it's agile
PuffTheMagicDragQueen: Good Evening :)
Izandai: tqsLol
EightBitDreams: There are some companies that don't even fit the terminology - like TOSE, who secretly helps companies like Nintendo make games
Raiz0k: :D
Raiz0k: Yeah, I'd like to see them to dislodge "Raspbian".
SmithKurosaki: Also, Beej, I'm glad to hear you're protected :p
smallimprovement: Music genres for example
Foxmar320: Yes
RandomTrivia: OH NO
PharaohBender27: Oh nnooooo
Izandai: Paul no
shea_wolfe: I'm suddenly reminded of the death of the "G" rating system. Like how 4G doesn't mean anything

DoodlestheGreat: We're glad too!
Fairgrim: Hot Pocket or Taco
Mr_Dirty: It would be a taco thank you /s
SmithKurosaki: But is a taco a sandwich?
Raiz0k: Is mayo with or without mustard?
Drasvin: Yes
djalternative: Correct. They bought the shares at $X/share
ieva_art: what did nintendo buy?
EightBitDreams: And testing third party games
Izandai: @ieva_art Next Level Games, developers of Luigi's Mansion 3, Punch-Out Wii, and Mario Strikers (among other things)
cuttlefishman: Do they have seperate Quebecois translations / restreams?
Foxmar320: lol
GapFiller: Le Boit Orange
Foxmar320: Glad we settled that
MrSVCD: In Sweden and Norway, we have Berssala, not Nintendo since the Berssala people made sutch a good impresion on Nintendo.
TheMerricat: I don't know why but I saw that as restrooms @cuttlefishman
the_canuck_mystic: Acadians everywhere thank you?
cuttlefishman: First in Canada, no?
GapFiller: the wyrd ting abt Le Boit Orange is that Valve are a US company and yrd think theyd know better
EightBitDreams: That was a great article
cuttlefishman: @the_canuck_mystic do not call Quebecois Acadians
cuttlefishman: or vice versa
Going_Medium: Do they just asd Eh to everything to localize the English version?
cuttlefishman: both... may be irate
devil_dan: I still don't believe in the existence of French Canadians. It's a conspiracy!
Raiz0k: @GapFiller : but it they call it Le Boit Orange in the entirety of Canada, or just Quebec?
Raiz0k: *did they
Snowcookies: The overlap between Acadians and Quebecois is very tiny
the_canuck_mystic: @cuttlefishman that was sorta my point "french canadians" != quebecois. There's lots of french canadians outside of QC.
PharaohBender27: katesLol tqsLol
TheMerricat: TImelinewise, I'm assuming that didn't happen during the Wii era
Graved: Was PogChamp story already discussed?
EightBitDreams: Microsoft tried to buy Squaresoft too, and were told they didn't offer enough money
RockPusher: "Steve made us go! They laughed at us! Stupid Steve!"
GapFiller: the idea of some clueless American gaijin getting laughed outta the room is evergreen
Foxmar320: Im surprised they didn't buy Sega
Juliamon: Graved They're going over the stories that made the episode first
Raiz0k: Well I mean it can be like "Did you think you could by Apple?". Really depends on the point of history.
cuttlefishman: "An oral history" sounds lewd
Graved: @Juliamon got it ;)
Kiytan: I'm with beej on this
PuffTheMagicDragQueen: It's been a while since i've watched any LRR. Beej's hair is something else right now
EightBitDreams: Microsoft was a much smaller company back then, they didn't have infinite budget
Raiz0k: It's been something else for a while now.
justjoshingwith_u: Yeah Beej is really rocking the quarantine hair @PuffTheMagicDragQueen

justjoshingwith_u: ^
TheMerricat: Just from following news about Japanese companies and foreign involvement, I have to believe part of it was just the Nintendo folk being flabergasted that Microsoft thought that they'd let someone not Japanese own them.
Foxmar320: Advance would have been new
GapFiller: for reference Microsoft was only founded in 1975
EightBitDreams: Nintendo had been making hardware since the 70's
Ivalenz_: But Microsoft's purchase of Nokia and Windows Phone went soooo well. lolz
LurkerSpine: Reading this just makes me interested in Microsoft's current acquisitions. I *really* want to know if they're looking (or looked at) Sega or Capcom
Graved: In Balmer days, that was 100% way to shut down the conversation
ashiok_nightmare_moose: did microsoft even make hardware? so wouldnt that be what theyd be getting FROM them
EightBitDreams: They basically said that
CaptainSpam: Microsoft didn't *acquire* Sega, but Sega was sure friendly towards them at first.
EightBitDreams: Microsoft made their Sidewinder controllers
Foxmar320: Microsoft and Sega had history with the Dreamcast.
LurkerSpine: @ashiok_nightmare_moose Microsoft partnered with a bunch of people to make hardware
Foxmar320: Dreamcast ran a version of Windows CE OS.
GapFiller: it feels the failure of the Dreamcast really helped Microsoft as they were able to pick up many of those pieces
ToastyLoaff: Nintendo brand PCs
iris_of_ether: Honestly, it's not even rare to run into people in tech who are like "your stuff sucks, I've never done it myself but I know I can do it better"
ToastyLoaff: like Apple
GapFiller: yr wonder how itve panned out if Sega had kept going
EvilBadman: It's not :making hardware" as so much as signing off on designs and components.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: i would just ask nintendo to put microsft on the fine print sticker on the bottom and just take the passive income
EightBitDreams: Well, for its time GameCube was more powerful than PS2 except for disc size
Drasvin: The N64 was powerful for it's generation
Graved: Not that much stuff attached to it, tbh

Invitare: and yet the GC's Metroid Prime somehow managed to look better than Xbox's Halo
LurkerSpine: I really wish Nintendo would contract out their net related stuff. They're terrible at it.
CaptainSpam: I also get this sliiiiight feeling the "for an hour" part might be hyperbole. lrrBEEJ
EvilBadman: It was a very western business way of thinking and they got shot the hell down
ashiok_nightmare_moose: or for optimists you could end up with smash w online multiplayer
EvilBadman: Also what Heather said re: japan
EightBitDreams: It also helped that Nintendo of America was just down the road from Microsoft HQ
Gizmoloid: Marketing games on gameplay rather than graphics? Yeah, probably. The console however? They totally marketed GameCube's graphics on various gameshows at the time.
GapFiller: EvilBadman ofc theres a long history of The West doing this to exactly this response in The East
RockPusher: No-one bought an original Xbox for games - they were bought to put XBMC on them lrrBEEJ
Emergent_OS: I think, Microsoft have always struggled in Japanese Market.

DoodlestheGreat: I won at Eve many years ago.
SmithKurosaki: Yea, TiDi
SmithKurosaki: It.... kind of works?
RockPusher: EvilBadman mostly - it did hold true for everyone I ever met IRL who had one
SmithKurosaki: It made Burn Jita fun
PharaohBender27: How many people were trying to fight, again?
notthepenguins: amazing
SmithKurosaki: @PharaohBender27 TiDi kicks in when probably more than 3000 people are in a system
Foxmar320: "Without their weapons" ive seen this bug in Destiny
SmithKurosaki: Or if >1500 are engaged in combat
DoodlestheGreat: More like "Event Horizon." :tf:
Fairgrim: reverse the polarity !
TheMerricat: Quick! Reverse the polarity of the deflector dish!!!
RandomTrivia: Timey-wimey. The phrase you're looking for is timey-wimey
SableTiger: Is TiDI at the system level or localized?
Kiytan: it reverses the polarities of the neutron flow
MrSVCD: We where pc gamers in my friend group so it was mostly a xbmc machine and DoA
HistorysGr8estMonster: "Too many ships, the polarity has reversed, gotta wait until they re-align again."
TheMerricat: Warp speed limit
DoodlestheGreat: Like I said in the comments, "Don't fly what you can't afford to lose."
TheMerricat: Lasted all of what? four episodes?
RandomTrivia: A universal speed limit, or "c"
the_canuck_mystic: not even four episodes.
PharaohBender27: @SmithKurosaki I realize that's a lot of people for an online game server, but I find it kind of funny because there have been real-world battles that involved like 10 times that number of people
the_canuck_mystic: I don't think it got mentioned again.
TacitusVigil: That's why Voyager's nacelles went up.
SmithKurosaki: And then Voyager pushed 10
GapFiller: we try not to talk abt Threshold
PharaohBender27: @SmithKurosaki We do NOT talk about that episode
cuttlefishman: But how do all factions obey the speed limit
GapFiller: actually thats not true
iris_of_ether: We don't talk about the time Voyager pushed 10.
TacitusVigil: And then Starfleet fixed the problem, yeah.
RockPusher: It's good to be the flag ship lrrBEEJ
SmithKurosaki: @PharaohBender27 That's per system. The entire universe is on a single server, but it's segmented by system somehow
Fairgrim: TNG was the flagship
cuttlefishman: considering how bad we're at with international carbon emissions restrictions?
Emergent_OS: I love, when game’s technical difficulties can be explained in-universe.
cuttlefishman: Where is the incentive?
r10pez10: Space Fantasy Ruined By Real-World Restrictions
Fairgrim: we're too popular
iris_of_ether: I was on one of the Trek cruises. Even the actors don't like Threshold. benginLol
SmithKurosaki: @LoadingReadyRun Often when there is a planned engagement, the big nullsec corps contact CCP to dedicate more server to systems
TheMerricat: What always messed with my head was, the Enterprise was the flagship by TNG, why did they keep getting so many shitty milkrun assignments?
SmithKurosaki: (It helps reduce tidi)
PharaohBender27: That sounds like a very Eve Online thing to do
TacitusVigil: I'm shocked. I thought the game *was* a pyramid scheme. Kappa

DoodlestheGreat: Use of spies to destroy alliances from the inside is a long-respected tradition in EVE.
TacitusVigil: So they're Space Libertarians?
TheMerricat: EVE Online, the libertarian utopia...
SmithKurosaki: @DoodlestheGreat RIP VileRat
RandomTrivia: Bringing full effect to the phrase "We are not responsible for players' actions ingame"
Emergent_OS: Sometimes CCP creates monuments to commemorate significant events. Like creating massive ship graveyards to serve as a reminder of particular massive battles.
xantos69: I LOVE hearing about EVE stories. It reminds me of exactly why free markets need regulation and oversight.
Fairgrim: IRL social engineering to break in game alliances
MrUglama: will they reset the sector?
DoodlestheGreat: @smithkurosaki, Yeah... lrrAWW
beowuuf: themerricat: i like to think that was punishment for all the times someone went rogue or almost destroyed the universe
SmithKurosaki: @MrUglama Nope
AngryFil: i find stories about EVE much more interesting than the game itself
TheMerricat: lol @beowuuf
GapFiller: gotta wonder how many Bitcoiners got their start playing EVE
SmithKurosaki: CCP is very hands off, they only help when there's serious issues, and they basically refuse to do rollbacks
Fairgrim: trade ISK for game time too

SmithKurosaki: Yup
SableTiger: The $ -> Plex -> Isk "exchange rate" is a huge part of why EVE coverage got more exciting in the past 5 years or so
DoodlestheGreat: EVE is the Libertarian's dream universe. Which is why the strongest alliance in the game practices Socialism. :tf:
SableTiger: Because of this "X$ lost"
TheMerricat: I thought there was ship insurance?
SableTiger: headline
Emergent_OS: There are even EVE books, that delve deep into significant historical events, like rise and fall of player empires.
MrSVCD: If you could convert isk to cash it would be a bank, with all the laws that comes with that.
Zanzabar_: also the ships and their captians take alot of real world time to create.
SmithKurosaki: @TheMerricat After you're past battlecruisers, insurance is a waste
Plasterboard: The only thing that doesn't get obliterated is your pilot/character.
Konda020946: as far as i know most of the ships of one faction are unrecoverable due to server issues

SableTiger: The NPC Pirate factions are like that
SmithKurosaki: I mean, Blood Raiders are literally EVE Reavers
SableTiger: they have structures and ships of that theme but they aren't like the converted debris themselves. YEah.
xantos69: I would rather right reavers than the borg. But its close.
xantos69: fight***
SmithKurosaki: IIRC, Sansha's is closest thing to Borg in terms of ops

TheMerricat: essentially DDOS EVE sectors
SmithKurosaki: Nah, light a cyno and bridge everything in with a Titan
Plasterboard: EVE is just a prolonged exercise in attrition as a means of combat
SableTiger: There's definitely warleaders talking about those things but yeah, the Titan is kind of a hard counter to frig-rushes because it's a huge AoE.
SmithKurosaki: Not quite?
SmithKurosaki: Like, when you log off, the ship autowarps off
Neddy471: Ghost Ships: The Reserve Currency of the EVE Galaxy.

Raiz0k: @Plasterboard : i.e. very realistic total war?
SmithKurosaki: @Plasterboard You're not wring
DevDevTheWevWev: PogChamp
CAKHost: How do I mine for Ship
SmithKurosaki: @CAKHost
SmithKurosaki: By actually mining, and getting blown up?
Raiz0k: With RPG Maker?
SmithKurosaki: You do get free basic ships to start
Raiz0k: (I'll see myself out)
CAKHost: Yes
Tomasu82: the guy behind it said it's not the same format. it took a non trivial converter to do it and some things don't map over
CAKHost: (I don't play Eve Online so I'll go with whatever. I just feel like making a dumb callback joke)
Raiz0k: (it scanned, don't worry :) )
Graved: Zelda uses custom model, unfortunately
SmithKurosaki: @CAKHost Fair. I played pretty heavily for like 5+ years, but haven't really played since ~2013?
Raiz0k: Re Mi format, yeah, it looks like a base model format, with no post-processing etc.
bladed_shadow: i found this really neat when i heard it
PotatoWraiths: boop
matthaus_c: Re Mi, the model format that sneaks into your hair and controls you for cooking
Graved: I should look into adding mii voices to 15.ai andyThinking
Raiz0k: It's both a "great programming sense" and "potential rabbit hole", which one is it usually becomes clear only in the long run.
Foxmar320: I want to play as Zelda
bladed_shadow: i had a kirby model that used the sunglasses to feet, that would look really weird
TacitusVigil: Let us play as Zelda!
richard_ermen: Heckpoint!
Kazman20a: it was ok, but ....2020
Foxmar320: I was in the beta for Minecraft Earth
EightBitDreams: It was going to be a thing for Magic Leap
Raiz0k: Did anyone actually really play it?
bladed_shadow: enjoy your copy of minecraft Beej
Juliamon: Everyone thought it was still in development I think
SmithKurosaki: I'm sad its dying, but much like... James? said on MoC, had other stuff to play (namely PoGo)
EightBitDreams: And HoloLens
Foxmar320: I found it REALLY boring and hard to play
MaladyDark: the last time i saw stuff for minecraft Earth, it was all, this has not been rolled out to your country, but we'll let you know when it is
matthaus_c: I don't have a copy of Minecraft :p
richard_ermen: I have 4 copies of minecraft and its weird.
Juliamon: I thought the meme was that everyone had a copy of Skyrim
niccus: oh, where was that followup tweet
NimrodXIV: I laughed, and then realized I have 2 copies.
SmithKurosaki: It's not a full version, but yes
GapFiller: phunnily enough I dont have a copy of Minecraft having not played it in something like 10 years
ToastyLoaff: woo hoo
DoodlestheGreat: _I_ do not have Minecraft.
Raiz0k: Yeah, which Ducktales :D?
Graved: And using GeyserMC, you can now connect to full-fledged edition of Minecraft
SmithKurosaki: Quick, get him
Raiz0k: "Bedrock" pretty much counts as "not a full version", trollolo....
LurkerSpine: I'm sad new Ducktales is done after this season
Foxmar320: Yes
Raiz0k: Not quite.
richard_ermen: The java edition was actually the classic one, if I remember correctly
EightBitDreams: Minecraft java launched as a free thing before 1.0
bytecaster: Actually the very original was java. And there might have been free creative mode?
shendaras: "Sort of"
Raiz0k: The earlier preview versions were free.
ButButTheJesus: minecraft started in Java and free
TheMerricat: Java edition of Minecraft was never free but there was an Education version of Minecraft for schools
Snowcookies: It was bedrock that's free if you had java
shea_wolfe: Creative mode was free and browser based I think?
MaladyDark: I only have 1 copy of minecraft. I bought it in 2009. back in 2009-2012 there was a free browser version
RockPusher: Way way back in the beginning, Minecraft was a free thing and a web-based applet
LurkerSpine: Minecraft educational edition?
Raiz0k: There was also some sort of trial version of Java edition.
Lord_Hosk: I bought three copies of minecraft for christmas
Faulpyr: OG Minecraft was Java... and super poorly optimized.
Graved: Java is not free, but you can just download pirated archives off the internet. It is very small LUL
Ivalenz_: You pay for your account, the software is free.
RomanGoro: Accounts are paid, but the download is free
petey_vonwho: I "technically" have minecraft but I don't remember how to access it anymore since I wiped my computer
LordZarano: "Minecraft Classic"
drawnbinary: I don't have Minecraft but I also only have 6 games on Steam
Blue_Anteater: @LurkerSpine Same! Very sad we won't see the return of Nega-Duck!
SmithKurosaki: I technically have 3 copies of minecraft
Foxmar320: I have the java version and the mobile version. Can't stand the mobile one.
slowbird: there was a while where the payment thing in Minecraft broke so they let everyone play it for free. i mean right at the beginning before it got big.
Gizmoloid: I was about to comment on the video that I don't have Minecraft and then I realized it was gifted to me for X360 years ago :D
GapFiller: swyrd I've constantly thought abt getting back into Minecraft throughout the 10 years since playing the Hell outta the pre alpha w/o ever actually going thru w/ it
SmithKurosaki: 2 of them are bedrock
ToastyLoaff: creeper plushies sell
Raiz0k: If you want actually free "Minecraft", there's an OS clone called Minetest.
MrUglama: they also host servers
niccus: oh right, relatedly, roblox now has a market valuation?
Neddy471: I bought three copies of Minecraft for family back when they originally came out.
shea_wolfe: They also probably make money off the servers, yeah
Kiytan: and it has all sorts of Microtransactions
RockPusher: I wonder if I could track down exactly when I first learned of Minecraft unarmeHmm
PharaohBender27: katesLol
matthaus_c: Mine O' Clock with special 15 minute guest Beej
MaladyDark: you had to pay to get the fancy latest version, with monsters and such, but you could play the free version which was the old old test versions.
GapFiller: #BlameJames
ButButTheJesus: #blamejames
EvilBadman: I was hoping a second Beej tweet of putting Minecraft in the Trash Bin
TacitusVigil: Beej no, this is how you get gifted with like 50 copies of Minecraft. lrrBEEJ
LordZarano: "Minecraft Classic" was browser based IIRC and came out before Minecraft Alpha version
KharadBanar: minecraft hasn’t been free since 2010
TwitchTVsFrank: #blamejames
matthaus_c: Blame James, because you can't blame Serge
bladed_shadow: what about Serge Heather?
MrUglama: lets get beej to minecraft!
Fairgrim: #BlameJames
Raiz0k: Re "free", there was also a Raspberry Pi version, and a later additional special "Python" version (I *think* they were separate) for teaching people to program bots in Minecraft.
Foxmar320: I remember that big CTS with everyone playing Minecraft
TacitusVigil: Beej already plays Beejcraft, no time for Minecraft Dr. Jones!
Foxmar320: G got lost in the jungle hunting cats
ToastyLoaff: are you ok Beej?
GapFiller: mmm chili dogs
Foxmar320: Chilidogs :P
theinvisiblevoice: and the diablo 3 speedrun got wr?
ArchonsForge: It happened again with 2 different games, back to back! Yesterday I think
shea_wolfe: Sonic 1 I thought, but yeah android
BigFMonster: It was SANIC 1
Foxmar320: Sonic 1
EightBitDreams: First DLC
MaladyDark: @rockpusher https://jayisgames.com/review/minecraft.php july 18 2009.
Foxmar320: It had Tails in it for some reason but it was Sonic 1
Neddy471: Use your words.
Graved: sonic & knuckles & knuckles
BrindleBoar: I will die still mad that there were not more weird cartridge shenanigans like S&K
KeytarCat: Sonic 1 with a bunch of QoL from Sonic 3
matthaus_c: "we can't have hit 1 million" "HOLY CRAP WE HIT 1 MILLION"
shea_wolfe: Lets talk about Frame counts Beej
LurkerSpine: Summoning Salt's video on Mike Tyson's Punch Out is an amazing discussion about how speedruns track time.
Foxmar320: lol
SmithKurosaki: Thats... kindof hilarious
Graved: "Couldn't", and yet there are new full second records being broken every year
LordZarano: Mario 1 can only end a level every 21 frames
GapFiller: see also Billy Mitchell
RockPusher: MaladyDark first mention I can find in my chat logs with my friends is Jun 13th 2009 and it seems we'd been playing a bit before then
LordZarano: axes, Bowser throws axes in Mario 1
djalternative: that's amazing
shea_wolfe: Best part is there's a somewhat infamous "Bad Frame" where you'll get hit by either bowser or a hammer bro right at the end
shea_wolfe: Losing your run
Raiz0k: Sierpiński's Mario.
EightBitDreams: There are a panel of legendary speedrunners
xantos69: Yea...speed runners are a particular branch of nerd folks I can't ever really understand. But good for them I guess.
LurkerSpine: speed runs archive
Graved: speedrun.com is de-facto standard for newer games, but older games like Perfect Dark and Golden Eye got their own websites
Decaped: It's more like grad students writing papers about proper standards, rather than whatever BS Guiness comes up with.
Raiz0k: That sounds a bit of like blackmail.

DeM0nFiRe: Each leaderboard for each game on speedrun.com I think has their own people from that game's community that moderate for that specific game. Which makes sense because each individual game can get complicated with like what the rules are for verification, and each category etc.

EightBitDreams: A recent speedrunner cheated at Minecraft, the people in charge did some heavy statistical math to prove it. Then the speedrunner hired a mathemetitian to counter it
PharaohBender27: Oh *that* Cooking Mama game :D
shea_wolfe: Also don't even get started with the different categories
Graved: "Mathememetian", excuse me
EightBitDreams: Hehe
EightBitDreams: Martian
shendaras: And sometimes console connected to the TV they're using and so on
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah the Minecraft cheating thing is an example where someone played it live and streamed it, it just turned out they played on a modified game to improve some RNG
Raiz0k: @EightBitDreams : not a "mathematician", but a "astrophysicist", and the latter used very suspicious argumentation and language for someone supposedly working in science, to put it charitably.
Raiz0k: *an, crap
RvLeshrac: Plug for https://speedbump.run/ , if people want to try running lesser-run games as a contest :p
Decaped: That minecraft cheater made for a good statistics refresher.
Emergent_OS: If you are the first to speed run a specific game, you become an arbitrator of the speedruns for that game. MandaloreGaming made a speed run of Limbo of the Lost, and as a first speed run of that game, he automatically became an arbitrator of any future speed run of that game.
SohNata: I still love that Rami Ismail streamed a flight simulator run of the flight he was on *at the time* and almsot landed simultaneously.
shendaras: It's gotten fairly sophisticated, with statistical analysis for rng and so on. Knock-on effects when someone changes something and something else changes and people realize they're linked.
iris_of_ether: @sohnata I continue to be impressed by him :)
ButButTheJesus: ensnowify
Raiz0k: There's actually quite a substantial body of research in modern computer vision to augment that sort of cloud-covered terrain.
SmithKurosaki: Apply precipitation?
EightBitDreams: Flight Sim 2020 in VR is purely amazing. Crazy immersive. Of course, it totally eats computers for breakfast, especially when there is snow
Raiz0k: "Generative imagery"
Raiz0k: Although it's not like a 50-year-old thing, so there's no on right term.
EightBitDreams: You can fly in snowstorms. You can choose the weather ior choose live weather
RatekStormcrow: You can have real weather
RatekStormcrow: or custom weather
djalternative: yeah you can choose to control weather
Fairgrim: Isnt there an option to use real time weather in FlightSim
Fairgrim: Any plane is a weapon
Raiz0k: Meh, everything sufficiently energetic is a weapon.
TheMerricat: And that's the story about how Heather got on the No Fly list chat....
GapFiller: 90% of old code has apparently been lost
GapFiller: according to an article this week
Raiz0k: Well, at least a flight license training ban.
TheMerricat: I wonder if they ever work with TOSEC.

xantos69: yea...emulators never really capture the really deep stuff. So many games I played as a kid had timers tied to processor speed.
GapFiller: something something Doctor Who
Fairgrim: Blizzard was having this issue
Raiz0k: Yeah, but source code is not like stone tablets, a lot depends on the actual implementation - as was covered on the latest Checkpoint, and we're pretty much talking right now.
GapFiller: its funny the similarities here between old video games and early television
PharaohBender27: Sounds similar to how a lot of TV stations used to just reuse tapes
Laserbeaks_Fury: Yeah, the original Star Control was tied to processor speed
Raiz0k: It's not a matter of code, it's a matter of how it runs on a specific hardware and OS.
EightBitDreams: I was a game developer on Gameboy Color and GBA. I had personal source backups on Zip Disk for years :) ...yeah, it's gone now
TheMerricat: That reminds me I need to find out if they still sell motherboards with onboard FDC chips. I found a briefcase of old Atari ST disks and wanted to dump them but the only Windows program that can do it properly requires bare metal access to the floppy drive.
Greggleswong: oh the iomega grift
Graved: On the other hand, Tony Hawk 1+2 remake completely lifted controls from old Underground to preserve the controls
Raiz0k: @Laserbeaks_Fury : *lots* of games were tied to the processor speed, because the easiest way to "track game ticks" was to count processor ticks. Just check out how many older games on GOG etc. have artificial slowdowns to make them playable on mother equipment.
Logue_Yne: the c&c remasters making of has a cool bit about finding old things
Creideiki_SE: Ars Technica had a fascinating article on getting the very last bits of emulator fidelity: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2020/04/how-snes-emulators-got-a-few-pixels-from-complete-perfection/
Raiz0k: Even games as young as Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth had that problem.
Loonatic93: Does anybody else remember Uptime Magazine? It had some really great little games for the Apple II and other personal computers of the era!
cuttlefishman: Gets into bikeshedding easily
Loonatic93: I've been trying to find some of the games they had to see if they have been updated into some sort of Web game or something.
Creideiki_SE: There's also the http://visual6502.org/ approach, but that's probably unattainable for anything after the 8-bit era.
Raiz0k: Yeah, there's a great book on Doom architecture design.
Graved: Google quake fast inverse square root for really cool mathematic trick used back in the day
3and4fifths: grep
rocketjohn: that is not a suprise.
Greggleswong: lmao
CranstonSnord: "Profanity is the one language all programmers know best."
Raiz0k: Only "surprising" if you don't know what kind of person Linus Torvalds is :D.
RunningMonkeys: yeah I'm guilty of doing that in my own code
rocketjohn: open source programmers are where toxic gamers get all their worst ideas from.
GapFiller: somewhere in some bit of early source code is a literal 'Here There Be Dragons' comment
EightBitDreams: Inverse square root
shendaras: Fast inverse square root, with crazy bit hacks.
Raiz0k: And discounting it being par for the course in programming in general.
EightBitDreams: Yeah, I helped port Missile Command to mobile, we had access to the original arcade machine code. Wasn't helpful at all, instead I watched lots of videos and read deconstructions of how the game worked, that was much more useful
Loonatic93: @LoadingReadyRun Does "Uptime Magazine" ring a bell with any of you? It was a computing magazine that offered floppies of some pretty neat games for the Apple II, Commodore era.
xantos69: Yea all good code is commented. All good comments contain the thoughts of the engineers who wrote it so you can understand their thoughts later on. All sufficiently important code should have been frustrating to write...hence swears become inevitable.

LunarJade: @bladed_shadow Thanks for the gift sub!
Graved: fyi, it wasn't writte by John Carmack, as he wasn't their optimizator programmer, I think. It was probably made by Terje Mathisen or Gary Tarolli
Raiz0k: @xantos69 : all good code is commented as to "why". There's lots of bad code that's full of comments like "this line increments the variable x by 1".
bladed_shadow: Cheers
shea_wolfe: If you want the real insanity you have to check the commit messages though
Kiytan: any game that releases is a miracle
3and4fifths: unzip, strip, touch, finger, grep, mount, fsck, more, yes, fsck, fsck, unmount, sleep
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, what Heather said absolutely happens.
Graved: My most common comment: "eldritch hack, crashes when changed"
SkylerRingtail: I have made that kind of comment before. It's bonkers - even commenting out a certain line that seems like it does nothing breaks everything
Manae: Magic and More Magic
PixelArtDragon: You can find the Civ 5 source code, and I've found a variable named "namedDoNotUseWeNeedThisToMaintainSaveCompatibility"
Plasterboard: That happens a lot when you inherit someone else's code
GapFiller: oooh jazz
cuttlefishman: Wow beej
xantos69: @Raiz0k Oh sure...bade code can have bad comments. But well commented code should read like a fun little trip through the program.
RandomTrivia: Jazz is good
BlackIsis: What's this "jazz"
cuttlefishman: so hateful
iris_of_ether: I had Magic/More Magic on my cubical wall for the longest time :D (I work in hardware)
RandomTrivia: Next story
BigFMonster: So you like Jazz
Kiytan: There's an amazing comment in the crysis notes somewhere next to the variable IsCharacterWalkingOnWater "why do we need this dave? our character is not jesus"
Raiz0k: @PixelArtDragon : I think you mean the config files, and yes. Civ 4 Python were even more interesting xD.
GapFiller: speaking of jazz great job on the delivery o that last line the the latest Crapshot Beej
TheMerricat: @plasterboard that even happens when it's your own. I've been guilty of comning up with a brainstorm, forgetting to write down how I got there, then coming back and not having an effing clue what I was doing but also impressed that whatever it was, worked.
Greggleswong: Get those fractions of a penny!
PixelArtDragon: @Raiz0k Nope, inside the DLL code
ButButTheJesus: they might make a future thing at some point!
Raiz0k: @xantos69 : at the risk of sounding trite, generally, people who write good comments know that the best comment is good code that does not require any comment. But yeah, I've had the experience you described, always a pleasure.
DanielJGrouse: coming to next gen consoles, meaning the PS6 generation
EightBitDreams: That's how Last Guardian was discovered, a job listing had a screenshot showing just a chain going down into a well
PixelArtDragon: @Raiz0k And this was Civ 5, not civ 4
TheMerricat: I can't tell if I'm just too embedded in Skyrim since I'm trying to rebuild a mod list for it ATM, but apparently the same just happened for the Elder Scrolls community with a map of Tamriel that Bethesda tweeted.

Raiz0k: @PixelArtDragon : oh, they went and decompiled the DLLs for modding now? Great! Re Civ 4 I meant that it had most of the business logic code in Python, just open and non-obfuscated, which was great for modding (e.g. made a functional shared PBEM server that we sadly never released beyond internal tests).
Raiz0k: (unlike Civ 5 which ditched Python)
TheMerricat: what did Civ 5 use?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Contrast did some cool stuff with shadows
PixelArtDragon: @Raiz0k Yeah, it happened way back in 2012 or so, the source code is available without the assets or config files (and I think there are some code pieces that weren't released)

TheMerricat: And now back to mangling records in Skyrim to try to get ALL THE MODS installed.
Raiz0k: Well, at least we now know where the actual singularity the "eats" the Earth will originate.
TheMerricat: It really just started out with me trying to update a premade modlist that I installed via Wabbajack and wanted to tweak one thing, but the dl page for that mod had patches for other mods and I went "oh, I don't remember reading about that mod, I wonder if it's installed on the list... wow, it isn't but man I really want to try it out!" Three days of iterations and I have about 100g dl'ed that I'm trying to cram into it.
